In line with the principle of open justice the court is open. Family members, those others who have been given Interested Person status, lawyers for Interested Persons and witnesses are welcome to attend court together with journalists and members of the public.
As a result of the ongoing pandemic, social distancing continues to apply. That means seats in court are limited. There is seating for all lead advocates. There are a further 24 seats available for family members, members of the public and members of the press who wish to attend in person. Those who wish to attend are kindly asked to email the court on firstname.lastname@example.org at least two days in advance to ensure that appropriate and safe arrangements can be put in place and to confirm that enough seating is available.
S9(2) of the Contempt of Court Act 1981 makes it contempt of court to broadcast recordings of court proceedings to the public. Remote access to journalists may only lawfully be given by way of audio transmission if the coroner expressly disapplies s9 of the 1981 Contempt of Court Act. There is an absolute statutory prohibition of members of the public or press having access to a visual broadcast. (The Chief Coroner’s Guidance No 38 Remote Participation in coronial proceedings via video and audio broadcast, 11th June 2020). The coroner will consider, on application, disapplying s9 to permit the members of the Press to have audio access to the hearing.
